Wrapped in Happiness

Howdy! We started out bright and sunny this morning but ended cloudy and dreary. Maybe we have some rain heading our way. My garden would like that a lot! The temperatures remain pleasant here so I'm grateful to have the windows open and just our ceiling fans on. Over the weekend I made a Christmas card that I want to share.

The card is very simple because I wanted a lot of the paper pieced background to show. I just took scraps of Christmas paper and cut them in half inch widths whatever lengths they were and then fit them together into a background and gluing them on a piece of white cardstock. The sentiment was a freebie from Lady Annes's Progressive Christmas challenge created by Nana Vic. Since it was in the shape of a tree I tried sponging the areas: green for the tree, yellow for the star and then red for the trim. Thanks to Nana Vic for providing the wonderful digis this month. I am off to use the other one so I can finish the challenge. Have an awesome week!
